First Day of School introduction of yourself…

Hello, I’m Shilpa and believe it or not, I started my working life as a doctor! However I was unable to deny my creative side for long, so made the life-changing decision to start my own business and have never looked back!

Thankfully my ability to wield sharp instruments appears not to have gone to waste since now I love snipping flowers and creating bespoke designs for my lovely couples.

The one thing I love more than flowers is people and am always fascinated by our couples’ stories so would love to hear yours.

I am also strong believer in promoting diversity and love how London is a melting pot for so many cultures… something I definitely try to reflect in our designs.

Going For Gold…

This recipe is part of her book ‘The Homemade Wedding Cake’ which is available from Murdoch Books, £20 – so if you are looking to make your own wedding cake make sure to check it out!

To make the sponge…

Prep: 30 minutes
Ingredients are for one 7” cake

100 g (3½ oz) unsalted butter

100 g (3½ oz) unrefined sugar

Zest and juice of half an orange

100 g (3½ oz) self-raising flour

2 eggs

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F).
  2. Grease and line the relevant-size cake tin(s).
  3. Beat the butter and sugar together with the orange zest for at least 5 minutes. The mixture should become noticeably paler and take on a fluffy appearance.
  4. Add the eggs (one at a time) and beat them in well. If the mixture stars to curdle, add a spoonful of the flour and beat again.
  5. Sift the flour into the mixture and use a large spoon to gently fold it in.
  6. Stir in the orange juice.
  7. Spoon the batter into the cake tin. Bake for 20–25 minutes. The cake is ready when the top feels firm but springy to the touch
